Lyndon is breaking through the tape ahead of Brian Berry in the 220 yds final.

The fencing in the background separates the field from the tennis courts of the Aberdare Town Club.
The camera is pointing toward the river end of the field.
This action is thought to have taken place at the Glamorgan Secondary Schools Championships in 1946. The Aberdare team, on the right, is in amber tops and black shorts.
passing the baton
Gwilym Howells (ABGS: 1941-48) is in the process of passing the baton to Lyndon Harries (ABGS: 1941-47).

Lyndon believes that the championships were held at Bridgend in that year.
